For an affordable home-away-from-home, head west of the city center and stay at Ellingsens Pensjonat, which is on a quiet street steps away from a tram stop making most local attractions, such as the recently relocated Astrup Fearnley Museum, 10 to 15 minutes away. Rates top off at about $145 a night for a double room with a private bathroom, and rates drop for rooms with shared facilities, so expect a simple yet homey stay (think fuss-free decor with a smattering of floral accents). The public spaces are charming and comfortable, and if you want to get a workout in, there's a small gym in the building.
